Governor Kaine Vetoes Restaurant Smoking Bill

April 10, 2007

Governor Kaine has vetoed a restaurant smoking bill following the General Assembly's reconvened session.

Kaine vetoed the bill that would have removed the requirement for restaurants to maintain non-smoking sections, provided they posted "smoking permitted signs."

Kaine offered an amendment to the legislation that would have banned smoking in all restaurants. He said that he would not eliminate the current requirement for a non-smoking section in restaurants.
